Fatty Fats

Fuel used by muscles for endurance work-outs.
Athletes who consume a low-fat, high-carb diet have significantly higher power and speed.
Fats are not all created equal. Lowering intake of fats that are not beneficial and even detrimental to health, primarily hydrogenated, saturated and animal fats, will help decrease body fat without lowering nutrients.

Best Choices:
Olive, coconut oils
Skim or lowest % fat milk
Part skim, low-fat cheeses, ice cream
Lean meats

Hidden sources to avoid:
Processed meats: lunch meat, hot dogs, sausage, bacon
Processed foods: pre-fab, pre-cooked foods, margarines (select a variety
with no hyrogenated or partially hydrogenated oils or trans fats)
Hydrogenated or partially hydrogenated oils, trans fats
Store-made baked desserts
Fast Foods


Butter, margarines
Mayonnaise and dressings

Recommended Doses
20-30% of calories should come from fats.
